National Philoptochos Announces Partnership

with U.S. Fund for UNICEF End Trafficking Program

National Philoptochos is pleased to announce a new initiative with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF End Trafficking Program.  Human trafficking has been likened to modern-day slavery that subjects children, women and men to force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of commercial sexual exploitation or forced labor. 

December is the National Philoptochos ministry commitment for the United Nation’s International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF).  In 2014, Philoptochos donated $30,000 to the U.S.  Fund for UNICEF through the commitment. 

In addition, January 11 is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day.

Our new initiative will focus on actionable projects that chapters across the country can implement immediately:

  1. Choosing ethically sourced, or “Fair Trade” coffee, tea, wine
  2. Distributing End Trafficking postcards in public places
  3. Entering the National Human Trafficking Hotline 1-888-373-7888 in personal phones

More details will be forthcoming on this website, regarding these and other programs in our partnership with the U.S Fund for UNICEF End Trafficking Program.
